Follow Me

“Follow Me.”

Sounds like a modern day request. We have blogs, twitter, facebook, etc to follow people in our modern era. Connecting with people is a powerful thing. Who you surround yourself with says a lot about who you are. While attending a powerful event over the weekend with fellow believers in our Lord & Savior, I realized that I am definitely not very good at inviting people into my life with those same words. I met people who are naturally awesome at inviting people into their lives and connecting with others.

In Luke 5:27-28, Levi left all behind and listened to those precious words, “Follow-Me.” I personally committed to follow Jesus almost 10 years ago now while attending college. After this weekend, I have a renewed strength and vision to follow those words daily by establishing a new rhythm: daily devotionals before God and reflections on what I have read. I thank God for technology and a method to keep me accountable to that commitment. I am betting that by beginning with His words in my mouth and mind daily, I will have clearer vision on most days because I will be set on a good path.

  1. This is a great plan and one that I believe is essential for spiritual growth. Not just for a sense of, I need to get this done because I l know it will help. But the faith in it! The joy it brings to us, to realize the positive influence God can make in just 15 to 30 minutes. Set aside just for His purposes in our lives. It grows the roots of our faith deeper into truth. With the ability to obtain the nourishment of the Holy Spirit; for substantial growth, towards righteousness.

    Romans 12:9-13

    Marks of the True Christian

    9 Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. 10 Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. 11 Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. 12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. 13 Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.

    Hebrews 4:12-13

    12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

    Thank you Lord, for your love, justice, mercy and grace! Amen
